I believe you need the select value in single quotes, as in:

<xsl:param name="versionParam" select="'1.0'"/>


NOTE:The nearest equivalent in Java to an xsl:variable element in a template is a final local variable declaration with an initializer. For example,

<xsl:variable name="x" select="'value'"/>

has similar semantics to

final Object x = "value";

XSLT does not provide an equivalent to the Java assignment operator

x = "value";

because this would make it harder to create an implementation that processes a document other than in a batch-like way, starting at the beginning and continuing through to the end.

Hope this helps!

Since this is FOP work-related, I guess I can be
allowed to ask a very newbie XSLT question here:

I just added a parameter to one of the XSL example
files (eventually to show the use of a JAXP
transformer.setParam() call) as follows:

<xsl:param name="versionParam" select="1.0"/>
<fo:block>Version <xsl:value-of
select="$versionParam"/> ...

But it keeps outputting "Version 1" in the resultant
PDF.  What is the standard way of getting it to
display "Version 1.0"?
